Dear Ballet Boy

He's a gentle breeze,
I'm a tornado.
He's the sun,
I'm the moon.
He's graceful and composed,
I'm sloppy and a mess.
He's fire,
I'm ice.
He's everything I'm not.
We're different planets,
On different levels.
We can never be together.
We'll crash and burn.
It won't last.
So I'll keep my mouth shut.
I'll watch from the crowd.
I won't say his name.
I won't look his way.
But, I know it won't help.
I've fallen in love with him.
And who wouldn't.
After all, he is the ballet boy.

Noah's journal

1/12/16

Dear ballet boy,

Today was the first day back at hell from winter break. To say I was in a shitty mood would be an understatement. I woke up ready to have a bad day.

When I finally got to school, a random girl came up to me, and you could say she was attractive, but she wasn't the one I had my eyes on.

I let her cling to my arm and follow me around while I pretended to like it. I walked through the halls in search of you, but when I finally saw you, I regretted it.

He was with you, you were smiling. I've never seen you look so happy before. I then decided it was for the best. You could never be happy with me, no one ever was.

Then you caught me staring, and I wondered what you were thinking. Finally I turned away, because looking at you with him, hurt more than you'll ever know.

Oliver's pov

Walking into school today, was like walking into another world. We've been out for so long and I'm glad to start a new year off on a good note. I walk over to my locker just as I spot Levi turn the corner.

"Oliver" he greets me smiling.

"Hey babe"

He pulls me into a tight hug and kisses my forehead

"It's been a while since I've seen you" he whispers

"Too long" I mumble into his chest nodding.

"I've missed you" I say as I pull back

"I missed you more" he says as he leans in to peck my lips. I can't help but giggle at how cheesy he's being.

Out of the corner of my eye I see none other than Noah Clark watching me.

He's hated me since freshmen year and though he's never said it, I know he does. You don't stare at someone like that if you like them. The stares turned to glares when Levi and I started dating. I look to see Rachel James, the head cheerleader, clinging on his arm like a rag doll, trying to get his attention.

Noah literally has a new girl on his arm every week, I'd be surprised if he even knew her name. He never seems to pay any attention to these girls. Eventually, he looks away and turns to walk down the hallway, Rachel being dragged behind.

"Hey, you wanna do something later?" Levi asks, getting my attention.

"Sorry, I have dance practice later" I say " but, I'm free tomorrow"

He nods slowly "Okay"

The bell rings, signaling that we have to go to class. Levi and I head off, and when we get to my classroom he stops me right before I walk in.

"Oliver?"

"Yeah?"

"Do you trust me?"

I scrunch my eyebrows in confusion," Of course"

He nods but looks distant,

"I love you" he blurts out, it seems forced. Or like he's trying to convince himself of these words.

It's not the first time he's said that, and I don't know why he looks empty, like a shell of the Levi I know.

"I love you too" I kiss him quickly on the cheek here turning to my class. And for the rest of the day I think about what could be wrong with him.

By the time I got out from school, I still hadn't figured out why was wrong with Levi. I get into my car and put the keys in ignition. Before I drive off I pull out my phone so I can call Rena, our nanny, to pick up my sisters from school, since I have dance today. As I'm driving to the studio I get a phone call, I answer using the button on my steering wheel.

"Hello" my instructors recorded voice rings through the speakers " I'm calling to inform you that afternoon classes have been canceled due to a family emergency. The studio will be closed until further notice."

I used another button on my steering wheel to hang up, so much for dance practice. I don't have anything to do so I decide to surprise Levi by giving him a visit. It's been a while since we've spent time together, and I want to know what was bothering him earlier. With that thought in mind I speed across town to get to his house. As I pull up I notice an unfamiliar car in his driveway. As soon as I walk through the door I wished I hadn't rushed to get there.

When I open the door, the first thing I see is Levi, sitting on his couch with a girl straddling his lap, their lips locked.

"Levi?" I yell "What the fuck?"

They break apart, Levi snaps his head to my direction.

"Oliver?"

"What the hell is going on?" I yell

"Levi, who is he?" the girl on his lap asks.

"I'm his boyfriend" I answer before Levi can open his mouth.

"What?"

Levi turns to me,

"Look, Oliver, I'm sorry, but I think that whole 'liking guys' thing was just a phase."

I can tell he's lying, I know he is. Levi's the one who asked me out, I didn't make him date me. Maybe he's telling the truth, maybe he never really loved me.

So I look at the girl,"You can have him, he's your problem now."

With that I turn on my heel and leave. I wasn't going to cry over Levi. I don't care. At least that's what I told myself, but the tears streaming down my face completely contradicted that. I lift my glasses up to wipe the unwanted tears and pull my beanie off. My car door is unlocked and I don't remember doing it.

Still though, I get in and run my fingers through my hair. The brown strands getting in my eyes. I pull my beanie back on and put my keys in ignition. If Levi thinks I'm going to chase after him, he's sadly mistaken. I won't wait for him to say sorry. I don't need him telling me more lies. I have my own life to deal with, wether Levi's there or not.

I turn the key, and the engine sputters then does out. I rest my forehead on the steering wheel. This day literally couldn't be worse.
